you do is, the usefulness is maximized. my experience is at times, depending on which agency were dealing with and depending on who was involved, you may have an agency that fully implements or even goes beyond what is identified in the report. but there may be some not doing everything we want them to do. if there is a way we can come back and monitor where an agency's response or implementation and recommendations are with respect to the studies and reviews that you have done, i think that would be a good way of ensuring accountability. i am interested in figuring out a process by which you could report to us where the implementation of these recommendations is with respect -- you talked about 37 studies at some point. where are we? you don't have the ability to force an agency to do something. your role under the charter is to identify what is happening and report on what is happening. i think that is where this committee can play a role in at least airing out what is going on are not going on so that the public knows that. i would like to maybe work with the controller's offic
